The Culture at Work Africa Project Steering Committee has evaluated the 253 applications received under the 1st Call for proposals launched by Culture at Work Africa. Applications were submitted from Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Tanzania, Togo, Uganda and Zimbabwe.
The final evaluation took place during the Project Steering Committee meeting on 29 October, 2018, in Brussels, Belgium.
The evaluation results are herewith published:
- Of the 253 applications, 114 projects proposals were not eligible since they did not comply with the Call’s guidelines and/or its formal requirements.
- 139 applications were assessed as eligible and were graded according to the evaluation criteria: 95 scored a mark under the threshold of 75/100, and, consequently, were not admitted to the final phase of the evaluation; 44 scored a mark equal to or higher than 75/100, and were therefore admitted to the final phase of the evaluation.
- In compliance with the evaluation criteria and the financial provision available, 15 applications have been selected for the award of a grant.
- A further 5 applications have been included in a reserve list: applications in this reserve list might eventually be awarded a grant, ONLY if any of the 15 grantees is not able to sign the contract and/or implement the awarded project within three months following the publication and communication of the results.
Culture at Work Africa reserves the right not to award all available funds if the grantees are not capable of implementing their projects according to the selection criteria and the guidelines of the 1st Call.
